Saturday and Sunday – those two magic days of the week, when nobody has to get up for school and there’s at least a halfway decent chance that we don’t have to be anywhere extra early and can maybe, just perhaps, sleep in for a bit.

It’s strange isn’t it, how if you start the day off badly – get out of bed on the wrong side so to speak, it really can affect your entire day afterward. Maybe it’s the change in attitude, or maybe just the feeling all day that something is [...]

Well, we’re here! My older kids have officially been back in school for a week now and we’re slowly (but surely) getting back into the swing of the school-year routine. And my littlest one started preschool this week too – she was so proud to head off on [...]

This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and Just My Size Sportswear apparel.
Although I’ve never really been a truly small person (just short!), it wasn’t until after I had kids that my weight became a major issue in my life. I gained an average of 15 pounds after each pregnancy – or at least ended [...]

I grew up on Wish-Bone dressings – I can remember my mom pouring their Italian dressing on every salad she made at dinnertime. In fact, I never even tried a different dressing until I was grown, and even now I have a fondness left for Italian. And [...]

It’s been just over 20 years since I graduated from high school – and wow did that time go by quickly. Although I made it to our 10-year reunion in 1998, the 20-year reunion last year just wasn’t do-able for my family. Over the years it’s been interesting to see who’s added their information to [...]
